The Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) presents annually Noether Lectures to honor women who have made fundamental and sustained contributions to the mathematical sciences. In April 2013 the lecture was renamed AWM-AMS Noether Lecture and starting 2015 will be jointly sponsored by AWM and the American Mathematical Society (AMS). These one-hour expository lectures are presented at the Joint Mathematics Meetings each January. As described by the AWM, Emmy Noether was "one of the great mathematicians of her time, someone who worked and struggled for what she loved and believed in. Her life and work remain a tremendous inspiration."[1]
